Cogni-flex?, provided by Douglas Laboratories, is a unique

combination of nutrients and herbs (huperzine A, Ginkgo

biloba, phosphatidyl serine, and acetyl-L-carnitine) which

work in concert to maintain and enhance brain and nervous

system functions, including those involved in mental

alertness, clarity, and memory retention. These positive

effects of the four components of Cogni-flex? upon

structure and function of the nervous system are supported

by numerous scientific/clinical studies

The four nutrients in Cogni-flex? support the structure and

function of cognitive processes in several ways. They

support neurotransmitter metabolism, enhance vascular

circulation to the brain, and help maintain structure and

function of nerve cell membranes.

Huperzine A: An extract of the Chinese club moss,

Huperzia serrata, huperzine A has been used in Chinese

medicine for centuries. It is an effective inhibitor of

acetylcholinesterase, the enzyme that degrades acetylcholine,

the neurotransmitter important for normal memory and

learning function. Huperzine A may help maintain cognitive

function that has been degraded by a reduction in the brain’s

functional levels of the neurotransmitter acetylcholine.

Ginkgo biloba: Flavonoid compounds and terpene lactones

in the ginkgo leaf help regulate the structural tone and

elasticity of arteries and capillaries. As powerful antioxidants,

the ginkgo flavonoids counteract the deleterious actions of

free radical accumulation which impairs functional cellular

energy production and nerve transmission. Ginkgo biloba

extract is also reported to inhibit the tendency of red blood

cells to stick together (“clumping”), thereby enhancing the

functional fluidity of the blood. Improving the functional

circulation to the brain and other parts of the body allows for

better oxygen and glucose uptake, with subsequent

enhancement of memory and mental functions.

Phosphatidylserine: This phospholipid, found in high

concentrations in the nervous system, helps maintain

functional fluidity of nerve cell membranes, thus providing

for optimal transport of nutrients and other compounds across the cell membrane. It is also used in the repair and

regeneration of nerve cells. Phosphatidylserine also appears

to help the body counterbalance excessive release of

adrenocorticotropic hormone (ACTH), adrenaline, and

cortisol which are released in response to stress.

Acetyl-L-carnitine: This acetylated high energy ester of the

amino acid L-carnitine contributes its acetyl group to the

production of acetylcholine, the primary neurotransmitter for

memory and thought. The enzyme that makes acetylcholine

from acetyl groups and choline is choline acetyl transferase.

The activity of this important enzyme has a tendency to

decline with age, causing low acetylcholine levels which in

turn are thought to contribute to the impairment of brain

function that is associated with aging. Research has also

found that acetyl-L-carnitine is active in optimizing the

functioning of cerebral blood flow, as well as of nerve cell

membranes.

Cogni-flex? capsules may be a useful dietary

supplement for those who wish to support the healthy

functioning of their mental processes.

Serving Size

1 capsule, 60 servings per container

Other Ingredients

Cellulose, gelatin, vegetable stearate and silica

Suggested Use

Adults take 1 capsule daily or as directed by physician.

Warnings/Cautions

No significant side effects reported. Mild, transient headaches may occur during the first 2-3 days of taking Ginkgo biloba in people with previously insufficient cerebral blood flow, indicating the activity of this herb. Ginkgo biloba may potentiate the action of anticoagulants and central nervous system drugs, as a result of its antithrombotic and psychoactive functions, respectively.
